Home-Start Cambridgeshire

Welcome to Home-Start Cambridgeshire

Home-Start is one of the UK’s leading family support charity, a voluntary organisation offering support to families who have at least one child under five when family life becomes difficult. All round the country local schemes recruit and train volunteers to support local families with young children at home.

We operate in Cambridge City, East and West Cambridgeshire, South Cambridgeshire, North & South Fenland – offering consistent and seamless support to families across the County.

Home-Start Cambridgeshire’s aim is to give every child the best possible start in life. The ethos of the charity can best be described as ‘One parent helping another parent through a difficult time’.

Our service supports families, through weekly volunteer home visits, to deal with diverse concerns such as parental mental health issues, isolation, postnatal illness, disability, bereavement, multiple births and parenting skills.

Our trained volunteers provide tailored practical and emotional support to help parents and children build confidence, independence, resilience and community connections.

This early intervention service offers a gateway to many other community services and we work in partnership with them to improve the life chances of our families and young children.
